A Chilly Morning at Bryant Park

Before I share my fabulous experience at the Project Runway 6 Finale Show, I would just like to (again!) thank my favorite fags on Project Rungay for the invitation. I was touched!

I arrived at Bryant Park at around 8. They didn't let us in until 8:30. It was 25 degrees.

But, I got to see Chris March amid the freezing weather, and later I got to tell him how much I loved his hair (in his collection, not on his head).

The tent was amazing, and even though I was in the back row, I saw everything pretty well.

There's Chris again, with Carmen Webber, who was sporting a fabulous coif with a pheasant feather. She's phenomenal.

Jay McCarroll, looking deliciously like a Caribbean housewife, with Kara Janx (is she pregnant again?), Kevin Christiana and Malan Breton.

Heidi Klum and Michael Kors, who looks pissed off for some reason.

Heidi and Ms. Gunn, who was just adorable! I don't know why Heidi chose the magic marker lipstick, though. She looked freaky.

And, of course, the fiercest fag in the tent, Christian Siriano and his boyfriend, Brad Walsh.

I took some runway shots, but none of them did justice to the clothes except this one. I want to post all about the collections later (with help from Getty Images!) but for what it's worth I liked the third collection the best. 

It was just such a monumental experience, I'm so glad I had the opportunity to go! I know it won't be my last fashion show.

I'm a PRG groupie so I saw your post about photos on your blog. Looks like it was a blast. Thanks for sharing.

Many thanks, TheNYCourier, from me, sister PRG fan NDC, for the photos and commentary.

As a sister Greater NewYorker, I sort of wish I could have been there, too, but in the cold, and with all the work I have to do today 20 miles north of the City, well, just not possible.

All the best,

Thanks for the photos. Kind of sad for the folks who didn't get the full experience of showing their collections. I hope PR gets there act together. I'm missing the show and all the fun we have critiquing it on PRG.
